BSc (Hons) Marine Biology
In this hands-on degree, one of the best in the UK and with an international reputation, you’ll explore the diversity of marine life from coastal margins to the deep sea and gain an in-depth understanding of the biology of marine organisms. Teaching takes advantage of the South Devon coast as well as some of Europe’s best marine facilities - so you’ll have the opportunity to not just experience marine biology but to practice it at the highest levels in both the laboratory and out in the field.
You will lay strong foundations for a successful career using our extensive industry links to secure a paid, one-year work placement. You’ll gain the confidence, real-world know-how and vital industry experience that employers are looking for. You’ll become adept at working with the very latest industry-standard software, in our high specification laboratories. Both will help you develop a strong understanding of fundamental principles, whilst honing your skills at the same time.
Marine biology programmes
This programme is one of three marine biology undergraduate programmes we offer, which are closely integrated and have the same entry requirements. They share common modules and research-led teaching applies to each, however there are important differences and we encourage you to read the course descriptions carefully, so that you find the programme that most suits your interests.
